Dancing with Alice in Wonderland

Things are getting curioser and curioser as Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre comes to Phipps Conservatory!

This event is now SOLD OUT. 

On Sat., Feb. 4, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and Let's Move Pittsburgh invite children and their favorite grownup dance partner to get active together and "Dance with Alice in Wonderland!" Boys and girls will celebrate their un-birthday by learning ballet basics, acting out scenes from PBT's upcoming production of "Alice in Wonderland" and meeting Alice herself. Smile like a Cheshire cat for a photo with the ballerina, and afterwards, explore the vibrant beauty of Phipps' Orchid and Tropical Bonsai Show. Registration includes Conservatory admission and a special discount to PBT's production of Alice in Wonderland, opening Sat., Feb. 10 at the Benedum Center. Advance registration is required, and both sessions are sold out. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and shoes. This class is recommended for children ages 3 – 7.

Admission is $45 for one adult and one child; you may register additional children for $10 each and adults for $20 each. Phipps members and PBT subscribers receive a discounted price of $40 for one adult and one child. All questions may be directed to Jenna Bodnar by emailing, or by calling 412/622-6915, ext. 3702

Before attending the class, please complete and submit consent forms for each child. Completed forms can be scanned and emailed to, or brought to the Conservatory on the day of the event.
